ABSTRACT
In this article, the author comments on how North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il continues to develop nuclear weapons even as the six-party diplomatic talks progress. The author notes that the diplomatic talks have made no real progress, but Kim Jong Il seems to be making continual progress with his development of nuclear weapons. What surprises the author even more is how the U.S. has backed down, when in 2002, the U.S. outcry was what started the ongoing proliferation drama.
